The 1967 Ford Mustang - an American legend and a true classic! To honor this beautiful classic, we’re looking to see your original take on a vintage poster featuring a 1967 Ford Mustang. So, show us your very own design and be sure to incorporate that vintage, retro look and feel to your poster – oh and of course it should be built in LEGO bricks!
The Grand Prize winner will receive the 10265 LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang, the 75884 LEGO Speed Champions 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback and a $500 shopping spree on shop.LEGO.com. To top it all off your brick-built poster will be turned into an actual poster by a LEGO Designer just for you.

Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off all angles and any features or functions of your creation. Please submit your photos in as high a resolution as possible so that we can see all the details clearly. If possible, the shortest edge should be at least 1080 pixels.

You are allowed to use all LEGO elements in your entry, including LEGO System, LEGO DUPLO and LEGO TECHNIC elements. The LEGO elements must be genuine (not cut, glued, drawn on or otherwise modified).
Entries should have a vintage look and feel and include the LEGO 1967 Ford Mustang or your interpretation of it and not consist of or contain copies of any other existing third-party work or creation or infringements of any third party intellectual property right.

You’re allowed to use graphical elements/effects of your own designs to support your brick-built poster (for example as background) so it is not a requirement that the poster is created with only LEGO bricks

No custom artwork (stickers/prints). Entries may only contain official LEGO-made stickers or printed elements from non-licensed sets, with the exception of Ford.
